Ok I have read the videomaker reviews on top of several other reviews of the cameras i have found on their lists. I have narrowed my search down to 3 cameras. If you think i have overlooked any cameras please let me know. Like i said this camera will be used for shooting of a documentary/entertainment/reality DVD. lots of action, lots of low light, lots of indoors, and lots of outdoors.
The JVC HD camera i have listed seems like a great deal for downloadable videos on the internet that will display naturally in HD on PC’s and still look good on regular TV’s and HDTV’s.
One question about HD and HD editing in particular is the strain on my PC. will HD editing put a huge strain on my PC? more so than regular editing? This is something i have no knowledge about and would like to understand. Also i still dont know if this camera functions good in low light or has chanable lenses. I also heard this camera has distortion of colors of flesh tones and other colors… how is teh image quality in all conditions?
ANY EXPERIENCE OR FIRST HAND INFO ON THIS CAMERA WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
i find nothing but good about this camera from professionals but from consumers i hear about problems about the tape deck chronically failing???? hasnt this hardware issue been fixed by 2006??
how does this camera perform in low light? how expensive are other lenses?? supposedly hte image quality is awesome. even in low light?
would you reccomend this camera as avidly as professionals do?
Lastly, the Panasonic AG-DVC30
reviews of this camera are outstanding. better than the GL2. Lots of pro features at a good price and accessible for starters and ametures. an awesome image quality, but does that transfer over to low light?
this camera seems like the best out of the 3 left i am considering… what can you say to convince me that this is correct, or false? any first hand experience with this camera would be particularly helpful, because this is the main contender in my considerations for a new camera.
it doesnt seem as main streem as teh canon but the list of features and positive marks for this camera are overwhelming.
this is a chance for a large comprehensive open discussion on some popular cameras on this website so i am asking you to participate and educate me and fellow members. please help this section of the forum to get going and start talking about video and cameras, what we all do best.
